Google Maps adds underwater imagery, Apple be damned
And you thought using google street view to get the number from that super hard to find Chinese restaurant was cool. This is about as left field as I have seen in a long time, but damn its dope! Maybe Apple should have waiting a bit longer before pulling the trigger on iOS Maps, they can’t even get imagery correct on objects above water, ops.
Google Maps strives to provide people around the globe with the most comprehensive, accurate and usable map of the world – including the underwater world. This ocean collection includes six of the world’s most incredible underwater spots, including coral reefs (and their inhabitants) in Australia, the Philippines and Hawaii. This imagery is available to millions of people through the Street View feature of Google Maps and in our Street View Gallery at: maps.google.com/ocean.
